What do you get when you cross Scrubs, Patch Adams and Grey’s Anatomy, then turn it into a satire, cover it with outrageous doses of everything and anything innapropriate or distasteful then hand it over to some of the best comedians in the biz? You get Children’s Hospital, a new web series on The WB.com from the twisted mind of Rob Corddry. The series stars a host of familiar faces, including Megan Mullally (Will & Grace), Eva Longoria (Desperate Housewives), Lake Bell (Miss Match, Boston Legal), Ken Marino (Dawson’s Creek, Veronica Mars, Role Models), Erinn Hayes (Worst Week, Kitchen Confidential), Ed Helms (The Daily Show, The Office), Jason Sudeikis (SNL), Nathan Corddry (Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip) and, of course, Rob Corddry himself (The Daily Show). And hey, it’s surprisingly funny! Like, really funny. With each episode totalling just a couple of minutes, you can watch all 10 in the space of an hour. So if you find yourself biding time working,waiting for the holiday break, find your way over to www.thewb.com for a lot of laughs (though, most likely, at the expence of any number of primetime medical shows you may enjoy).
